denc« and aggressivoness to fight hand-to-hand, the 
soldier is abb to attack and dispose of his opponent. 
Training in h&nd-to-hand combat is also useful for 
night patrols and other occasions when silence is tb- 
quired. Tliis type fighting is taught to soldiers in 
rear areas as well as those in front lines because of 
the threat of infiltration, airborne attacks, and 
guerilla 'warfare »

FUNDAMENTALS OF HAND-TO-HAND 
COMBAT 



3. G»naitil 

Five fundamentals are used as a guide in learning 
hand-to-hand combat These fundamentals are mak- 
ing fall use of any available weapon; attacking ag- 
gtessivelv by using your maximuni streiigth against 
your enemy's weakest pointy maiutaiEing your bal-

ance and desti^oying your opponent's; using your 
oppoiient's momentuni to advantage; tiiid learning 
eacli phase of all the movementa precisely and accu- 
rately bef re attaii^ ing spee d through constant 
practicft. 

4. Uving Available Weapons 

a. Whan fightmg hand-to-hand, your life is al- 
ways at stake. Tha use of any object as a weapon, 
therefore, is necessary to help subdue your enemy. 
You can make yoiir opponent duck or turn aside by 
throwing sand or dirt in his face or by striking at 
him with an entpSTiching tool, a steel helmet, or a 
web belt. When no object ia available, just the pre- 
tense of throwing something may cause an enemy to 
flinch and cover up, TVlien he does this, you must 
tokt advantage of his distriction to attack aggres- 
sively with but one purpose in mind— TO KIUj- 

b. If no objects are available to use as a weapon, 
you must make full use of your natural weapons. 
These are — 

(1) The hnife edge of your hand. Extend your 
fingers Hgidly so the little finger edge of 
your hand is as hard as possible (hg. 1). 
Keep your thumb alongside your forefinger. 



the second knuckle and wedge the second 
knuckles of your tivo adjacent fingers into 




Figure J, With the knif^. ed{je of your Katid, you can *irffce 
many killing aiid (Ks«6ftntf blows, 

(2) The finf/ers folded at the second knuckles. 
The average fist covers an area of about 
eight square inches. The fingers folded at 
the second knuckles gives a striking surface 
of about two square incheSj producing a 
sharper, more penetrating blow. Keep your 
thumb tightly against the forefinger to stif- 
fen your hand and keep your wrist straight 
(fig. 2). 

(S) The protni3ing second kyw^hle of your 
middle finger. Fold the middle finger at

its sides. Keep the end of the thumb over 
the fingernail of your middle finger and 
keep your wrist straight (fig. Z) . 

(4) The heel of your hand. Fold your fingers 
at the second knuckles and force the back 
of vour hitnd toward the wrist to make the 
heel of your hand as solid as possible 
(fig. 4). YoQ can dcliv&r a more damaging 
blow with the heel of your hand than with 
your fist 

(5) The litth finffer edge of ^our psL Form a 
fist. When using the little finger edge of 
your fist as a weapon, strike blows in the 
same motion as when using an ice pick 
(fig. 5).

sui-face with which to attack staall, exposed 
bony areas (fig', 6). 

In addition to the natural weapons a,b*eady 
mentioned, you can use your elbows, knees, 
head, shoulders, and teeth to disable an 
opponent.

Using maximum strength a^inst your enemy's 
weakest point is an asiom of war that equally applies 
to combat between two individuals. In every situ-

strength offered by your position, you can gain ^ 

quick victory. Attacking rather than defending is 

the keynote beoai^^ only through the use of offensive 

tactics are yon able to dispose of your enemy. 
6. Balance 

a. Keeping your own balance, while causing your 
opponent to lose his, is an important essential of suc- 
cessful fighting. Assume the guard position when 
engaging your opponent (% 7). This position is 
simDar to a boser^s crouch and enables you to react 
rapidly and move in any direction. Spread your 
feet about shoulder's width apart^ with your left heel 
generally on line with your right toe. If you are 
left handed, reverse this position and bring your left 
foot behind your right foot. Bend your body for- 

10 

ward at the waist and at the knees slightly* Hold 
the hands at face level and slightly in front of it. 
Extend and join your fingers, with the thumbs along 
the forefingers and the palms facing inward. Face 
your opponent squarely. The guard position offers 
you the best balanced position you can obtain before 
closing with your opponent. You will improve your 
sense of balance and learn to destroy your opponent's 
balance after eliding with him by practicing the 
maneuvers presented in this manual. 

&, When fightings keep your feet spread laterally 
to maintain balance. Destroy your opponent's men- 
tal balance by growling and yelling as you strike 
at bim.

B. Accuracy cind Spe«d 

You will have little time to stop and think whea 
engaging in hand-to-hand combat. Therefore, your 
actions must be automatic. At the beginning, learn 
each phase of each movement separately and accu- 
rately, putting the stress on precision alone. As you 
progress, work for speed through constant practice. 
Speed is essential to the successful employment of 
most of the maneuvers outlined in thia manuah 

CHAPTER 3 
VULNERABLE POINTS 



Section I. INTRODUCTION 

9, General 

a. Vulnerable points are areas of the body that are 
particu] ar ly susce ptibl e to blows or pressure. 
Knowledge of these points and how to attack thettn, 
plus aggrefisivenesH and confidence, vpill enable yo'u 
to attack and tiuickly disable or kill the enemy you 
meet in hand-to-hand combat. 



b. When yoti are attacking an opponent, your 
first r&action is probably to strike him on the jaw 
with yoTir closed list, Thia ia one of the poorest 
ways to light. A better attack is to strike your op- 
ponent across the bridge of his nose with the knife 
edge of your hand. This type blow could easily 
break the thin bone in his nose, causing eaLtreme paia 
and temporary blindness. A severe blow could drive 
bone splinters into his brain and cause instaat death. 
These actions must be performpd without hesitation 

10, Body Regioni 

The body is divided into three regions: The head 
and neck^ the trunk, and the limbs. Here is a list of 
the major vulnerable points of each region —

i. Bas^ i>f throat 

J. Chin 



11> Caution 

Only a small amount of pressure or a light blow is 
needed to injure or kill a man when attacking some 
of the vulnerable points. It is important, therefore, 
to strike very light blows in training when learning 
how to attack these points. When tlioroughly 
trainedj you may add a little more force to your 
blows; but still remember the vulnerability of the 
area- being attacked in order not to injure your train- 
ing partner. 

Section 11, HEAD AND NECK 

12. Eyes 

There are various ways to blind an opponent. One 
ia to drive your inde;s and middle fingers, formed 
into a V, into your opponent's eyes (fig. 8) . Keep 
your fingers stiff and your wrist firm. You can also 
use the second knuckles of two adjacent fingers in a 
sharp thrust at the eyes. The eyes can be gouged 
out by using your thumbs or fingers* 

13. N«se 

'Wlien attacking the nose, strike a forceful blo^ 
with the knife edge of your hand across the bridge 
(fig 9)- This blow can easily break the thin booe,

causing your opponent extreme pain and temporaiy 
blindness, A yerj sharp blow could drive bone 
Bplinters into your opponent's brain and kill Kim in- 
stiintly. You can also use the outside edge of your 
closed iist. When fighting at close quarterSj attack 
the nose by bitting the bottom of it an upward blow 
with the heel of your hand, 

14. Adam's App]« 

Attack the Adara's apple with the knife Bdg^ of 
your hand {^g. 10), A severe blow can result in 
de^th by severing the windpipe. A lesser blow is 
painful and causes your opponent to gag. The 
Adam's apple ia also vulnerable to attack with the 
fist,^ toe, or knecj depending upon youir opponent's 
position. Squeezing it or pulling it outward with 
the fingfers and thumb is another method you can

A blow to the temple can easily kill or cause a con- 
cussion. The bone strncture at this spot is weak and 
an artery and a large nerve lie close to the skin. At- 
tack the temple with the knife edge of your hand or 
with the outside edge of your closed fist (Jig, 11) , A 
jab with the point of ^^our elbow can also be used. 
If you succeed in knocking your opponent down, kick 
his temple with your toe.

A blow with the knife edge of your hand to your 
opponent's nape ("rabbit punch") could easily kill 
him by breaking hia neck (fig, 12). The outside edge 
of your fist can als<J be used- Use this blow if your 
opponent chargfts low and his h^nds axe not guard-

knocking your opp€iient down, kick his nape with 
your toe, stomp it with your heel, or strike it with the 
knife edge of your hand. 

17. Side of Neck 

One "way to knock your opponent unconscious ia to 
deliver a sharp blow with the knife edge of your hand 
to the side of the neck, below and slightly to the front 
of the ear ( fig* 13), You can deliver it in two ways : 
A backhand delivery ^rith the palm down or a for- 
ward sltish with the palm up. This type blow causes 
unconscioiisnesss by shocking the ji:gula.t vein, the 
carotid artery , and the v a gus nerve, 1 1 is not particu- 
larly dangeroua. 

18. Upper Lip 

A vulnerable part of the face ia the upper lip, just 
below the nose, whore the nose cartilage joins the 

Ti 







bone, The nerves here are close to the skin. This 
area can be attacked by delivering a sharp blow with 
the knife «dge of joar hand at a slightly upward 
angle ^%> 14 )♦ A very shArp blow can can^ uncon- 
sciousness. A lesser blow causes e:xtreme pain, A 
jab with the second knuckles of yonr fingera can also 
be used, 

19. Ecirs 

Cup your hands and clap them simultaneously 
over your opponent's ears (fi^. 15), This is a dan- 
gerous blow and may burst his eat druma, cause nerve 
sLockf or result in possible int&mal bleeding, A 
sharp enough blow <an cause a brain concussion and 
death.

20, Base of Throcit 

One way to break an opponent's hold on you is to 
quickly thrust one or two extended fingers int^ the 
smaJl inJentfltion at the base of his throat (fig. 16). 
The blow is painful and causes him to gag and cough. 
Severe injury could result if the thin layer of skin 
at this point is pierced.

21. Chin 

An effective hlcw can he delivered to your oppo- 
nent's chin with the heel of your hand, which is better 
than a closed fist (fig. It). You may break a bone 
in your hand by using your fist. 




Section ]IL TRUNK 

22. Groin 

When closing with an opponent, tcep in mind that 
one of the best points to attack is tte groin. Attack 
it^by kicking np forcefully with your knee (knee- 
lift) (fig. 18), You can also use your closed fist, the 
knife edge of your hand, grasping fingers, a toe kick, 
or a heel stomp. 

23. Sdar Pl«xu9 

_ Tlie solar plexus is at the bottom of the rib cage. 
just beneath the breast bone. To attack this area, 
thrust sharply with the second knuckle of the pro- 
truding middle finger (%, 19) . This method per-

tive than striking this small target with the fist

to the solar plexus causes extreme pain and may 
either bend your opponent forward or drop him to 
his knees- Deatli may r&sult from a severe blow* 

24. Spirt« 

The spinal column houses the spinal cord and a 
blow here can cause derangement of the column, re- 
sulting in paralysis or death. If you succeed in 
knocking your opponent down, a blow ^th your 
knee^ your elbow, the heel of your shoe, or a toe kick 
can easily kill or seriously injure him (fig- 20). 
Tbe best place to strike this blow is three or four 
inches aboye the belt line where the spine is least 
protected.

25- Kidney ^* 

Certain large nerves, branching from the spine, 
are very close to the skin surface over the kidneys. 
A blow here can rupture the kidney and cause severe 
nervous shock or death unless the victim receives 
immediate medical attention. To attack this area, 
use the knife edc^ of your ha^nd (fig. 21). Other 
effective blows can be delivered with fingers folded 
at the second joints, the outside edge of your fist, the 
knee^ or a toe kick. 




Fif^-itrc 21. Attacking ihe kidnty. 
26. Collar Baii« 

A forceful blow delivered straight down on the 
collar hone at the side of the neck with the knife edge 
of your hand can fracture the bone and cause your 
opponent to drop to his knees (fig. 22)- Another 
way of attacking this point, and a particularly good 

25 

way i£ your opponent is shorter tlian you, is to 
drive your elbow down into the collar bone.

below the ribs, and the blow causes terriflSc shock to 
this organ, Attack this area with the knife edge of 
your hand {fig. 2S), the outside edge of your fist,

a "rabbit punch" to hig nape. The knuckle blow 
gives sharper penetration than a blow with the elbow 
or fist, A toe kick or a knee lift can also be used 
and could cause serious injury. 

29. Annpit 

A largB nerve is close to the skin in the armpita* 
A blow to this area causes severe pain and temporary 
partial paralysis. If you succBed in knocking; your 
opponent down, attack the armpit with a toe kick

Section [V, LIMBS 

The small bones of the instep can easily be brokea 
with t, stomp, causing severe pain to your opponent 

as well as limiting his movement. l\Tien facing 
your opponent, deliver a stomp with the edge of your 
left hoot to his left instep or with the edi^e of your 
right boot to his right inctep (fig. 26). This type 
delivery protects your groin area, as you turn. Fol- 
low the blow to the instep witfi a blow to the ankle. 
Kjck your opponent sharply on the outside of his 
ankle with the outside ed^e of your boot. Do not use 
a toe kick because it n^ay slip o€ your opponent's 
ankle without doing damage*

39. Bftrnt Objects 

By striking your opponent between the shoulder 
blades on his spine with a blunt objeot, yon can loiock 
him out noiselessly. You can use the blunt end of a 
hand ajce or the butt of a rifle {fig. 34) . A blow with 
the toe of the rifle or the edge of the axe win kill 
your oppotient instead of stunning him,

You can straiigle an unsuspecting enemy sentry 
by u^ng a tent rope or a piece of ^m (pars* 50

CHArrER 4 
KNIFE AHACK 



Al, Generol 

A knife, properly employed, is a most deadly 
wesipoTi, You can use it on. patrols wK&n silence is 
necessar}^ to prevent an outcry by an enemy sentry, 
or you can use it for cloae-in fighting when your 
rifle or carbine is not available. 

43. Grrp 

To grip the knife properly, lay it diagonally across 
the outstretched palm of your hand. Grasp the 
small part of the handle next to the cross guard with 
your thumh and forefinger. Your middle finger en- 
circles the kniffi over the handle at its largest diam- 
eter ffig. 35). With the knife held in rhis manner, 
it is easily maneuvered in all directions. You can 
control the direction of the blade by a combination 
movement of the forefinger and middle finger and s. 
turning of the wrist. When the palm is turned up 
and you are holding the knife in your right hand, 
you can slash to the right or left, When the palm 
is turned down, you cati also slash in either direction. 
You can thrust when the palm is held either up or 
down- Whea the knife makes contact, it is grasped 
tightly by all fingers. 

44, Sl«inc« 

When engaging in a knife attack, you are in a 

crouch with your left hand forward and the knife 

37 




held close to your body at the right hip (fig. 36). 
Your outstretched left hand acts as a guard, a foil^ 
or a parry, and it helpa create the opening for a slash 
or a thrust. You may also use your left hand to dis- 
tract your opponent's attention by waving it m his 
face, by throwing something, or by making sudden 
darting motions toward him. When you are in this 
type crouch, your flexed knees provide extreme mo- 
hility and you have good balance. In the crouch, 
yon are also able to protect your midsection and 
throat area, 

45. Where To Attack 

a, Wlien a man is attacked from the front with a 
knife, he instinctively tries to protect his stomach 
and throat. If he is wounded in one of these places, 
his fear is so great that he may forget to defend him-

self further- His opponent, therefore, can easily 
killhtnu 

6, You caji attack the throat with either a thrust 
or a slash. The thrust is the most effective if the 
knife is driven into the base of the throat just below 
the Adam's apple (fig. 57) . This type blow cuts the 
jugular vein and results in instant death- A slash 
to either side of the neck outs the carotid artery, 
which carries blood to the brain. Your opponent 
will die from loss of blood within a few seconds. 

e. A thrust (fig. 3B) combined with a slash to the 
stomach produces greac shock* Your enemy will be 
stunned and will forget to defend himself. You can 
then deliver a killing blow, A deep wound in the 
stomach causes death if the wound is unattended. 

d. A thrust to the heart (fig, 3D) causes instant 
death. This spot, however, is difficult to hit because

of the protecting ribs, "Usually, a hard thrust will 
slip off the rib and penetrate the heart. 

e. A slash to the wrist (fig. 40) will sever the radial 
artery, causing death within two minutes. This type 
attack is excellent if your opponent attempts to grasp 
your clothing or arm. The radial artery is only one- 
quarter inch below the surface of the skin. Uncon- 
sciousness results in about 30 seconds. 

/. A slash to the upper arm just above the inside 
of the elbow (fig, 41) cuts the brachial artery and 
causes death within 2 minutes. This artery is about 
one-half inch below the skin surface. Unconscious- 
ness occurs in about 15 seconds.

(fig. 42) severs the arteries there and makes that 
limb useless, .

SILENCING SENTRIES 

47, General 

Knowing the methods of sileaicmg sentries will 
enable jou to maintain ailenoe and surprise and kill 
an unsuspecting man from his rear quickljj quietly^ 
and efficiently. 

48. Hftlmal Neck Break 

Qraep the front rim of yovce opponent'e helmet 
with jour right hand. At the same time^ place your 
left forearm against the back of his neck and place 
your left hand on his right shoulder [fig. 46 0). 
Holding firmly to the front rim of your opponent's 
helmet, pull his helmet ^p, back, and down and press 
your left forearm forward (fig, 46 ®), Your left 
forearm, under the back edge of his helniet, acts a^ a 
fulcrum against which his neck is broken. This 
method is possible only when your opponent's hel- 
met strap is fastened underneath hia chin. 

49> Helmet Smash 

If you see that your opponent's helmet strap is not 
fastened or should you discover this when attempt- 
ing the helmet neck break, silence the man with a 
helmet smash. Pull your opponent's helmet quickly 
from his head. While doing this^ grasp his collar 
with your other hand^ jerking him otf balance to his 
tear (fig. 47 O) ■ Then smash the helmet to the back 
of his head or at fcbe back of his neck (fig, 47 ®).

method is used. 

50. Stfangulatlon With Wire or Cord 

For thia method of strangling an opponent to 
death, you. need a piecB oi fleinible wire or a piece of 
cord About three feet in li^ngth. Approach the 
enemy from his rear, holding an end of the wire or 
cord in each hand. Toss the wire or cord over his 
neck from his left^ and place the heel of your Iftft 
handj still holding the end of the wire or cord, on 
h]s shoulder near his nape. At the same time, place 
your knee in the small of the man's back and pnll 
back on the cord or wire forceiully with yonr right 
hand while pushing with the left hand (fig. 4S). 
If this is done quickly, your opponent cannot cry out. 
You can tie tlie ends of the rope or wire around t\yo 
short sticks for ii better hold. 




5T^ Two H<ind Loop 

Hold an GJid of the wire or cord in each hand. 
Place your left forearm across the back of yonr op- 
ponent's neck as shown in figurs 49 ®. Swing your 
right arm over your opponent*s head from hi^ right, 
looping the wire or cord in front of his throat- 
Complete the li>op and jerk your arms sharply in 
opposite directions, tightening the loop and strati* 
gling your opponent (fig. 49 <D), Quick application 
of this mesthod prevents your opponent from crying 
out Tou can cause unconsciousness or death, de- 
pending on the force used and the length of time the 
hold 13 applied*

FALL POSITIONS AND THROWS 

Section L SIDE FALL POSITIONS 

53. Oenertil 

You must learn various faD positions before you 
attempt the tJirows that are taught in unarmed com- 
bat. CoT^stant practice in these positions will enable 
you to be thrown without being injured, 

54. Left Side Foil Po«ItEon 

FigTire 50 shows the left side fall position. The 
check points for this position are— 

a. Your right foot is driven to the ground^ taking 
up the initial shock of the f alL It sttikea the ground 
before your body and is crossed over your left leg at 
the knee. The sole of your foot is flat on the ground. 

h. Your left arm is the "beating" arm and takes up 
additional shock- It is extended along the ground, 
pdm down, at an angle of i5° to the body. This arm 
makes contact with the gronnd at the same tiine your 
'^shock absorber" foot does, 

c. Your chin is tusked into your chest. Ke«p your 
neck tense to prevent your head from being injured. 

d. Your right arm is folded across your chest. 
This prevents injury to your right elbow and offers 
some protection to the head and body from the blows 
of your opponent 

e. The entire left side of your body makes solid 
contact with the ground. To relax your left leg, 
bend it slightly to prevent it from being injured.

with your left foot so that your body is propelled 
into the air, feet first, and is parallel to the ground. 

» 

While in midair, twist your body 90° to the left and, 
at the same time, cross your right foot over your 
left leg at the knee. The sole of your right foot faces 
toward the ground so it will strike the ground first, 
thus tftking up the initial shock of the falh While 
still in the air, extend your left arm in front and at 
a 45^ angle to your body. Your palm is down to 
take up the additional shock of the fall and to pre- 
vent injury to the elbow. Tuck your chin into your 
chest and fold your right arm across your chest. 
This prevents injury to your head and right arm 
when you make contact with the ground. When yon 
strike the ground, you have good contact along the 
entire left side of the body, your right foot having 
absorbed most of the shock. The right side fall 
position can be practiced in a similar immner*

Sacticin UK BASIC THROWS 
59- General 

At times in hand-to-hand combat, you haye to 
throw your opponent to the ground before you can 
attack a vulnerable part of his body. Three basic 
throws used are tlie right; hip throw, the over 
shoulder throw, and the rererse hip throw. Varia- 
tions of these throws can be used and new ones 
taught after you have learned the basic ones. An 

additional basic throw^ the leg hock, is not described 
in this manuaL 

a. Speed is the prim^ary factor in throwijig an 
opponent in combat. In training, however, strive 
for precision and accuracy. Do each phase of the 
throws with deJiberate action. Once you have thor- 
oughly learned the throws, work for speed through 
constant practice. 

h. In the beginning, your partner should offer no 
resistance. He should cooperate and permit you 
to execute the throw while he concentrates on assum- 
ing a good fall position, 

c. The three throws described in this section may 
be executed from either side simply by substituting 
the words ^nght" for ^%tt" and 'left" for "right," 

60, Right Hip Throw 

a^ Start the right hip throw from the guard posi- 
tion, facing your opponent. Place your left foot 



in front of and slightly inside of your opponent's 
left foot- At the same time, strike your opponent 
vigorously on his nght shoulder with the heel of your 
left hand ajid grasp his clothing here (fig, 53 ©) . 
This blow knocks him off balance. 

I. Pivot to your left ISC' on the ball of your 
left foot During yonr pivot^ place your right arm 
around your opponent's waist and jerk him forward 
forcefully with both arms, driving his midsection 
into your buttocks. This maneuTer bends your op- 
ponent over your right hip at his waist and leaves 
him partially suspended in this posi^on. At the 
completion of this maneuver^ your buttocks are into 
your opponent's midsection , your right foot is in front 
of and slightly outside of his right foot, and your 
knees are bent (fig, 53 ® ) ,

At the sam& time, bend forward at the wai^t and 
pull forward and down with both armg, driving your 
opponent to the ground (fig* 53 (?)). Use your hip 
as a fulcrum, throwing the man over your right hip 
and not over the outside of your leg. At the comple- 
tion of the throw, your opponent lands in the left 
side fall position. You are poised to deliver a blovr 
to a vulnerable part of his body.

Over Shoulder Throw 



a. Start the over shoulder throw from the guard 
position, facing your opponent. The first phase of 
this throw is identical to the first phase of the right 
hip throw and the foot work is identical tliroughout 
to that of the right hip throw. Plac€ your left foot 

ia front of and slightly inade of your opponant'a 
left foot. At the same lime, strike him vigorously 
on his right shoulder with the heel of your left hand 
and grasp his clothing here [fig, 53 0), 

J. Pivot to your left 180* on the ball of your left 
foot. Keep your right arm in position to protect 
your head and neck region until you near the com- 
pletion of the pivot. Then reach up and grasp your 
opponent's clothing at his right shoulder with your 
right hand, gripping him here with a double hand 
hold. As you complete your pivot, pull your oppo- 
nent forward and drive his midsection into your but- 
tocks <fig, 54 ©). Tour buttocks are directly in 
front of your opponent's hips, your right foot is in 
front of and alightly outside of your opponent's 
right foot, your elbows are aa close to your body as 
possible, and your knees are bent. 



Cu Straighten your legs, bend at the wa^ist^ and pull 
downward with both hands (fig. 54 @) • This action 
will catapult him over your shoulder. Tour part- 
ner assumes the over shovlder throw fall position as 

he strikes the ground. 
62. R«v«n« Wp Throw 

a. Start the reverse hip throw from the guard posi- 
tion, facing your opponent- Stand slightly closer 
to him than in the two previous throws. Take a long 
step forward with your left foot and place it slightly 
outside of and a few inches beyond your opponent's 
right foot. Most of your weight is supported on 
your left foot. At the same time, strike your op- 
ponent forcefully on his right upper arm with your 
left hand and grasp his arm at this point with that 
hand (fig, 55 <T)). This blow causes him to lose his 
balance to the rear.

time you grasp your opponent's right arm with both 
hands and again use your hip as a fulcrum, 

c. In a third variation, plac6 your right arm 
around your opponent's neck as you pivot, rather 
than around his waist- Your left hand lodes your 
opponent's right arm (fig E6<?)),

HOLDS AND ESCAPES 



Sectron L HOLDS 

66. Gfrn&rol 

The two purposes of a hold are — 

a. To kill jour opponent Laimediately by applying- 
enough pressure to certain parts of the body. 

&, To hold your enemy until you can follow 
through with a blow to a vulnerable part of the body. 

67. Front Strangle Hold 

The front strangle hold ia particularly good against 



a low frontal attack. As yom' opponent charges, 
slap your left hand against his right shoulder to slow 
his monaentum and slip your ri^lit forearm under his 
throat. Clamp his head undf?r your arm. Clasp 
your left wrist with your right hand. Apply pres- 
sure by leaning backward and lifting with your right 
forearm (fig. 5& (T)). You trim chnke your opponent 
to death, in this position. Another way to execute 
this hold and one which acts more swiftly is illus- 
trated ij] figure 59 ®. Grasp the knife edge of your 
right hand with the fingers uf your left, pull force- 
fully toward your chest and, at the same time, lean 
backward. Properly executed^ any strangle hold can 
cause unconsciousness in approximately seven sec- 
onds. Continued pressure will kill a man in less 
than 1 minute. When applying this hold, keep t?i&

Section L SEARCHING 
114* General 

If you capture a prisonerj you will not normally 
search him alone. Move him to the rear where he 
can be covered by anothBr person while yon search. 
In extrame <^rcinnstaiices, however, it may be neces- 
sary to make a thorough search ^inassistedH Two 
methods for a rifle search are presented in this section, 

115. Ru1«« for Searching 

The rules vou should follow when searching a pris- 
oner are — 

a. Indicate hy inference, speech, and actions that 
you are completely confident and will fire if neces- 
sary, 

h. Do not kt your prisoner talk, look back, move 
his arms, or otherwise distract you, 

c. Never attempt to search a prisoner until you 
haire him in a position of extremely poor balance. 

cU Don*t move within am's reach of your prisoner 
until you have him in a position of extremely poor 
balance, 

c. If armed with a pistol, hold it at your hip in a 
ready position, and keep it on the side away from 
your prisoner. Change the pistol to your other hand 
when searching his other side, 

157 

/. When yon have assistance j keep out of your 
partner's line of fire. One soldier conducts the search 
while the other remains far enough away to observe 
the prisoner at all times, 

g. Don^t rela:^ your guard after you have completed 
your search, 

116. TachnFqu* of Search 

Oi. The ''pat" or "feel" method of searching a pris- 
oner will reveal inost ^weapons and concealed objects. 
Search \h^ prisoner's entire body, paying particular 
attention to his arms, annpita, back^ groin area^ and 
}egs> Thoroughly pat the clothing folds around his 
waJst, chesty and the top of his boots. Knives can be 
concealed on a string around the neck or taped to any 
area of the body> Take extreme caution when put- 
ting your hand in a prisoner's pocket or in the foil 
of a garment so he won't be able to clamp your arm 
and trip you over his leg*

b. After zhs, initial search, ei detailed search is made 
when the prisoner is moved to the rear. Force him 
bo disrobe completely and examine his eutire body 
from the soles of his feet to thft top of his heat]. 

117i Pron«^ Method of Searching When Armed WJth a 
Rifle 

Make the prisoner lie down on his stoniach so that 
his arms are completely over his head and close to- 
gether. His legs are also completely extended, feet 
close together. Place the muzijle of the rifle in the 
small of his back^ keeping the gun upright. Orasp 
the rifle tightly around the small of the stock, indes; 
finger on the trigger (fig. 103). After searching 
his back, order him to turn 07er and repeat the proc-

to prevent it from slipping. Yon can also use this 
method when armed with a pistol. Keep the pistol 
at your hip while searching. You will have to use 
atm*and-hand signals for no n- English speaking 
prisoners, 

TIB. Kneeting Method of Searching When Armed 
Wrth ci RiHe 

The prisoner interlocks his hands behind his head 
and kneels. He bends forward as far as possible 
until he is just able to maintain his balance. While 
searching his left side^ hold the rifle in your right 
hand, muzzle jammed into the small of his back. 
Put your left leg between his legs and against his 
buttocks (%. 104), In this position, you can quickly 
knock him fiat by thrusting with the le ft knee. When 
aearching his right side, hold the rifle in your left 
hand and put your right leg between his legs, knee 
against hia buttocks. You can also use this method 
when armed with h. pistol. Keep the pistol at your 
hip while seBXcbing.

119. WaH Method «f Searchrng Wh«n Armed Wfth 
rtie Pistol (For Another Method of WaU Soorch- 
rngSee FM 19-5) 

Have the prisoner lean against a wall or a tree, 
one hand over the other and feet, together and 
crossed as far to the rear as possible. This gives him 
extremely poor balance. To search his left side, 
place your left foot in front of his feet, keeping the 
pistol at your right hip (fig. 105), If the prisoner 
attempts to move, kick his feet out from under him. 
To search his Tight side, move to that side^ switching 
the pistol to your left hand and placing your right 
foot in front of his feet.

132> General 

The most effective way of controlling a prisoner 
is to tie him. Yon can use pieces of clothing or 
etjuipment to tie him securely, such as shoe l^ces, 
leather oi- web belts, neckties, handerchief Sj or twisted 
strips of clotL If a night patrol has tiie mission 
of capturing prisonei^, it should always c&rry a 
piece of rope or flexible wire. 

123. Bell Tie 

Take the prisoner's belt and order him to lie on 
his stomach. Crass, his arms behind hia back iud 

place the running fend of the belt toward his feet, 
buckle toward his back. Hold the buckle on the 
wrist of hia bottom arm and tightly wrap the run- 
ning end around his wrist sevetal times (fig* 109 ©), 
Place the running end of the belt parallel with his 
spine and outside the wrist of the upper arm. Now 
wrap the running end around the wrist of the upper 
arm several times (fig. 109 (s)). Be sure to keep the 




prisoner's arms as close together as possible and to 
wrap the belt as tight as possible. Fasten the belt 
in ths backlet (%. 100 @). Although this is an ef- 
fective means of tieing, you should use it only when 
the prisoner is under close watch, 

124. Shoe String Tie 

Two 2^-inch shoe strings or larger are needed for 
this tie. Have the prisoner remove his shoe or boot

laces. You can make this tie with the pnsoner*s 
hands either in front of hig body or behind his back 
the latter being more effective. Place his hands back 
to back, wrists touching each other. Take one string 
and tightly wrap it completely around botli wrists 
several times. Now wrap the end of the string 
around the cord between the insides of his wrist. 

This will further tighten the outside loops. Tie the 
ends of the string together with any conventional 
blot {iig, 110 ©), Nest tie the two little fingers 
together, using one end of the second string. Pass 
the remainder of the string over the loop around the 
wrists and tie his thumbs together. Wlieti you pass 
the second string around the wri&ta, be sure to pull it

Section r, THE INSTRUCTOR AND SAFETY 
PRECAUTIONS 

130. The Instructor 

The instructor should b^ in good physical conJi* 
tion and should be able to demonstrate all the maneu- 
vers described in this mannaL He must at all times 
display intense enthusiasm, vigor^ and leadership 
quaJitiea that will inspire the best efforts of the men 
being trained. He should train assistant instructors 
to closely suporviae all practical work and to demon- 
strate new material, 

T3I. General Precautldnt 

The following safety precautions must be strictly 
followed during aU training in unarmed combat— 

a. Supervise all practical work closely and con- 
stantly. fS^ever leave a. class unsupervised. 

h. Familiarize the students with each maneuver 
by complete explanation and demonstration before 
attempting- any practical work. 

c. During the learning stages, do not let the stu- 



'GOb? HAN'S JAMES BOND Vol. L 



417 



ARMY HAND-TC-HAKD COMBAT 



dents get ahead of your instruction. This prevenfcB 
accidents. 

d. During the stages of leariUDg and perfection 
f tecli nique, the train ing partner o ff ers no resistance. 
He should allow the maneDver to be freely executed. 

e^ Insure adequate space for all practical 'Work. 
A Kf>ac« at least S feet wide by 8 feet long \B needed 
for e^ch pair of students. 

f. Have the men empty their pockets before ttie 
practical work period and remove any jewelry, iden- 
tification tags, etc. 

192« Specific Freccutfons 

The following precautions are applicable to the 
particular phases of training listed — 

a. Yidnerahle Points. Stress that only gentle 
blows are struck during the initial practical work. 
As students become mare advanced, harder blows 
may be iised. But students at aJl times must be cau' 
tioned against using excessive force, since serious 
injury could result* 

b. Fall Po^titi&ns^ Throws^ Holds. 

(1) E.stablish a signal that can he given by th& 
individual student to stop the application of 
pressure when practicing holds. All stu- 
dents must know this signal, ^ortioidaTly 
lehen practicing strangle holds* This sig- 
nal can, for example, be a clap of the hounds 
or tapping your training partner, 

(2) Be sure all men are warmed up before do- 
ing any practical work. 

( 3 ) Teach fall positions be fore conducting prac- 
tical work in throws. 

(4) Caution the men to apply verj^ light pres- 
sure until they become familiar with the 
hold. 

(1) While the men are learning bayonet disarm- 
mg methods, keep scabbards on the bay- 
onets and keep the bayonets firmly attached 
to the rifles. 

(2) Use tent pegs or ba,yonet scabbards to simu- 
late knives ia learning knife disarming* 

(3) Caution the men who are to be disarmed not 
to place their fingers in the trigger guards 
of their pistols or rifles while practicing dis- 
arming with these weapons, 

S«dion It. CONDUCT OF TRAINING 

133, Formations 

Oj Kegulation physical training formations may 
be used for practice (FM 21-20), From the es- 
tended platoon, formation, have the 1st and 3d raaks 
face the 2d and 4th ranksj so that each man will have 
a partner. Even numbered men do not uncover. It 



is recommended, when practicing throws, that twice 
the normal distance be taken between ranks. 

h. For disarming methods, it is recomitiended that 
you use a formation of two concentric training circles 
or a formation that employs only two well-extended 
ranks. In forming the concentric training circle^ 
pair the men oflf so that each will have a partner to 
work with- 

134. Commondi 

a. Most of the maneuvers djescribed in this manual 
can be divided into several steps or phases. To fa- 
cilitate learning and to insure that the student learns 
each movement of an entire maneuver accurately » 
each maneuver is presented by phaseB, 

h. For example^ the right hip throw (par. 60) \b 
a three phase maneuver. In the first phase, the stu- 
dent places his left foot in front of and slightly to 
the inside of his partner's left foot. At the same 
time, he strikes his partner on his right shoulder and 
grasps his clothing at this point. The command for 
this movement is phas£ one or the hi? throw, 
MOVE, At the command MOVEj the student ex- 
ecutes phase one and holds his position nntiJ given 
the subsequent command for the next movements. 
These commands are phabb two (thiiix), MOVE, 
When the students have become proficient in their 
movements, you can then work for speed. The phases 
of the maneuver are combined into a continuous 

175 

movement by commanding iiip throw, MOVE- At 
first, the maneuver is executed slowly. Students 
gain speed through constant practice. 

c. Paragraph 92 explains the second counter 
against the long bayonet thrust. This disarming 
method is divided into three phases. For the first 
phase (par, 92^^), the armed student is given the pre- 
paratory command lonq thkust^ and the unarmed 
student is given the preparatory command fakkt 
RioHT. Since you want both students to halt their 
movements and remain in position for a subsequent 
Gornmandj you must command holo. The entire 
command for the first phase, therefore, is nowo 

THRUST, PV^KTtT EIQHT, AND HOLH, MOVE. The neXt 

two phases of the movement are executed while the 
armed man is extended in the long thrust. The 
command for the second phase (par. 996) is oitOTJNn 
AKD HOT^o, MOVE* The command for the third 
phase (par. 92;?) is niSARM axd hold, MOVE, The 
command for executing this disarming maneuver is 

DISARM FROM THE LOXG THfitJST^ MOVE. 

135. Exercise 

a. Recom^me;ndations for Warm-up Exerm^e^. 
Use combative exercises, grass drills, and tumbling 
exercises ta warm up your men* The aggressive na- 



POOH MAN'S JAMES BOND Vol 



418 



ARUfY HATJD-TO-HAND CUMBAT 



tur© of these warm-up dftlls lend themselves to the 
spirit of hand-to-hand combat (FM 21-20)- 

5, Recommended Drill for Parry Exe^cUe, It ia 
important that your men be trained in the bayonet 
disarming parry movements before practicing the 
disarming methods. To do this, have the paired men 
assume their r^pective guard positions with the chin 
of the unarmed man 6 to 8 irLchea from the point of 
the bayonet. The armed man stands fast in the 
guard position during the fintire exercise^ The un- 
armed man parries the bayonet first to the right and 

then to the left, on command. As he parries to the 
right, he side-steps to his left oblique with bis left 
foot, brings his right foot slightly to the rear of his 
left, and faces the side of the rifle. When he parries 
left, he side-steps with his right foot to his right 
oblique-

Section in. THE TRAINING AREA 

136. Trotning Pit 

£E- The most suitable area for teaching' fall posi- 
tions, throws, and counters is tlie sawdust pit. You 
can get sawdust easily at most stations. Figure 116 

177 

shows such an area. Each pit will accommodate 
twelve pairs of men. If you need additional room^ 
fill in the area to the sides of each pit, as shcwn^ 

b. To construct a pit, either dig out 12 inches of 
ground or build a retaining wall of dirt about 12 
inches high around the sa-wdust pit. 

c. Place a raised platform, about 14 feet square^ 
in the center of the pit area for demonstrations. 
Cover it with a removable mat. This platform is 
big enough to hold both the demonstrators and prin- 
cipal instructor during the demonstration. 

d. The men gather around the platform to watch 
the demonstrations. 

137. OfherAreai 

a. Any large grassy or sandy area is suitable for 
work in disarming methods and throws. Students 
should be taught fall positions before learning throws 
on a hard grassy area* 

b. Classes in unarmed combat can also be con- 
ducted indoors. In thia case, the floor and walls 
should be matted. The difficulty here is that only 
a small group of men can participate at one time, 
since an area eight ftet square should be allotted for 
each two men. 

13a* Variation in Minitimm Training ProQram 

Periods eight and nine of the subject schedule in- 
clude work in throws* faUa, and escapes from basic 
holds. This time, however, may be spent in review- 
ing previous lessons, if the instmctor thinks the stu- 
dents need review. The throws, falls, and escapes 
can be included in the physical training program.
